<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
At a guess, are you serving your CSS files with the correct media type? It should be ‘text/css’. You can check this if you’re using Firefox by going directly to the CSS file (in the address bar), going to Tools / Page Info and checking the Type field.
